At the hospital today
they`re going to do a
slice and dice on my back
then send me home.
No big deal
but you worry anyway,
the woman across from me
is waiting for hubby
her cell phone starts to play
the most godawful tune
she makes no move to answer it
and relieve our agony.
The whole lousy song plays out
then and only then
does she move to it
and proceed to call back
the person who just called.
If my eyes could fire lasers
she`d be toast. I`d wait for hubby
and get him too
but they`re calling for me,
another opportunity lost
